Planting day

I hope I will do research with the Mosholu Preservation Corporation next summer, but I decided to see one of its projects in the North Bronx today. During the tree and flower planting day in Mosholu Parkway I have asked high-school students “Why are trees important for your community?” Watch the video to learn what youth have replied. Most of them come from BuildOn, an organization that involves youth in weekly community service projects, and eventually sends some of these youth to build schools in poor countries such as Mali and Nicaragua.
